Elite Tents was established in 2010 - the first tipi hire company based in the Midlands and we have provided tipis for well over 200 weddings. The tipi or “teepee” tents are incredible constructions. We promise we’re not being biased – we’ve seen how they’ve created the most unique and memorable occasions. Clothed with natural tan canvases and supported by traditional Scandinavian wooden poles, tipis create a stunning yet practical venue… wherever that may be!
Tipis offer the best of both worlds.
Aside from their beautifully unique elegance, hire Elite tipis and you’ll enjoy a strong, versatile and weatherproof venue like no other. Unlike marquees that conceal you from the rest of the world, tipis fully immerse you into your surroundings – whether that’s a tree-lined field in stunning manor house gardens or behind your office! We can raise the sides of the tipi to wow guests with a spectacular view or create a warm ambience with an open fire pit. The dreams are endless…
Our experience, time and care mean that you can feel confident that your day will be in safe hands and completely stress-free. For us your special day is not just another date in our diary. We treat every event uniquely and with the same level of passion as if it were our own. We help you to create a magical atmosphere that you and your guests will remember for the rest of their lives.
What makes us stand out from other marquee and tipi companies is our level of passion. Everyone can say that they have good customer service but we have literally over a hundred testimonials that say repeatedly that we are helpful, flexible and give good advice. We imagine ourselves in the position of the couple and try to ensure that we provide them with their dream day. We spend hours perfecting floorplans and talking to customers, giving them advice and help. We make it part of our mission to get to know the customers - we talk to them regularly in the build up to their event, know their names and venues specifically. Whilst our company has increased in size we aim to ensure that it is not so big as to become impersonal. Both we as owners and all of our staff work to give a friendly but hard working personal service.
So at Elite Tents, your wedding is not just another date in our diary. We treat every event uniquely and with the same level of passion as if it were our own. Our experience, time and care means that you can feel confident that your day will be in safe hands and completely stress-free. We help you to create a magical atmosphere that you and your starry eyed guests will remember for the rest of their lives.

Jacquie, Richard & the Elite team, Thank you so much for all you hard work with the incredible tipis for our wedding. They looked absolutely amazing and made the perfect setting for our reception. Couldn't recommend Elite Tents highly enough - absolutely brilliant. Thank you! Jo and Paul xx

“Using Elite Tents for our wedding was a brilliant decision. As a company, they were a total pleasure to deal with - so efficient and helpful. And of course, their teepees are absolutely amazing! The visual impact of them, especially for the many guests who had never seen anything like them before, was massive. They really helped set the tone for a wedding that was fun, casual and quite different from many other weddings. Even before we added our own decorations to them (metres of bunting, jars and tins of flowers, brightly patterned serviettes and luggage tag place names), they looked so appealing. It's so much easier to create an impressive area for your reception when the base that you start with is so striking to start with. Also, using teepees allows a freedom with other suppliers (eg. caterers, bar, DJ) that you simply don't get in many venues; this really suited us down to the ground. Once the sun had set, the fairy lights adorning the interior and exterior of the teepees looked truly magical. So, all in all, I would definitely, definitely recommend a teepee wedding with Elite Tents!”

“We had a fantastic Wedfest and the tipi's went down a treat! Everyone - including the caterers and bar hire - said it was the best wedding they've ever been to and we are on a huge high. Thank you for everything.”
